Hi. My name is Hilary and I am a playwright. (That sounds like an opening sentence at one of those self help groups like Alcoholics anonymous, doesn't it?) Playwrights Anonymous.
Trouble is, that is exactly what I am. Anonymous. No-one's actually heard of me. So although I write for several hours a day, and my plays are produced by am-dram groups (seven have been produced in England, two in America), although I won a national Playwriting Award in England, and though two of my plays have been published by a fantastic firm in Florida, (Eldridge Publishing, check them out), I still sit in my little house in England, blowing on my fingers Bob Cratchitt style, while thinking how I can make last night's gruel stretch till next weekend for my dozens of kids (well, two still at home, but the amount they like to eat, they might as well be dozens... )
Aside from my great line in self pity, I like to talk to people. So please, come in, sit down, make yourself comfy and chat.
